hi there,
iv came here not for myself but for the sake of my little bro who is currently stressing out big time with a program he making for a project. the problem he has is that his partner who he teamed up with has now decided to leave his course and has left him in a lurch with finishing the project. He's been working around the clock but is finding trouble with a certain part which is to Create a function to look up a phone number or email address given a partial name i really wish i knew what any of this meant to help him myself but it goes over my head lol any info would be greatly appreciated

Since it goes over your head and you really don't have the slightest clue, have your brother whose writing the program create his own thread here so that he can ask an intelligent question.
